SUSPECTED gang robbers have, on Wednesday 25th, narrated how they killed their victims and sold their vehicles in the capital city of Edo State.
The supposed gang leader, Williams Abiodun, while being paraded at the Police Command Headquarters in Edo State, alongside 10 other suspects, told newsmen how himself and four of his members usually disguise as site workers to lure unsuspecting drivers to where they would rob them of their vehicles before killing them.
“When we get to the site, we collect their vehicles, kill them with blocks and sell their cars.
“We killed the first person, collected his car and sold it to a Chinese company.
“The second person was a tricycle operator whom we killed and sold his tricycle. But we were arrested while trying to sell a Toyota Sienna which we got during the third operation,” he revealed.
Another gang member, Akin Amadin, also narrated how he made ninety thousand naira (N90,000) during the operations:
“Abiodun told me that my job was to watch to see who was coming.
“The first one we did, he gave me N35,000; I got N55,000 in the second operation, and we were caught while trying to sell the third car.
“We killed three people in all,” Amadin said.
The Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Dankwara, during the parade, confirmed the arrest of 135 criminal suspects since his assumption of office in the state. He also added that his operatives recovered N1.2m and sophisticated arms and ammunition from the suspects.
